↔️ Head to head
An examination of their past head to head meetings stretching back to 25/11/2016 tells us that these fixtures have not been fruitful for Almere City. They’ve not been able to get themselves any wins whatsoever while VVV-Venlo have managed to find a way, running out winners in 100 per cent of those ties.
A combined total of 19 goals were scored between them during those clashes, with 4 for De Zwarte Schapen and 15 coming from Venlose trots. That’s an average goals per game of 3.17.

The match was refereed by Laurens Gerrets.
ℹ️ Team News: Almere City
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just one fitness concern for the Almere City manager Alex Pastoor to be concerned with from of an almost fully healthy group of players. Faiz Mattoir (Cruciate Ligament Injury) misses out.
🗞️ Team News: VVV-Venlo
Due to a fully injury-free group available to choose from, the VVV-Venlo boss Rick Kruys does not have any fitness worries at all before this match.
We feel that over the course of the game, VVV-Venlo will need to put in a solid display to break down this Almere City lineup who we reckon should score one, at least.
We therefore fancy a hard-fought 1-0 winning score for Almere City when the full-time whistle blows.
A close call.
